Beauty Grab Bag: OCTOBER

Happy Monday, loves! How was your weekend? Did you dress up for pre-Halloween festivities? To see who I was dressed as, click or scroll down! I also got to see UGA beat FL! Go dawgs! But back to my Beauty Grab Bag--these are products I purchased myself (this month was my birthday, so I was given some goodies). Maybe you'll find something new to try, or avoid! Enjoy!


Maybelline Colossal Volume (Waterproof)--I had a coupon for this and I wanted a mascara that was waterproof for my trip to Disney World. I haven't used this mascara in years, and it's a decent mascara. Hard to remove though!

Nip + Fab Bust Fix--This is supposed to firm, plump, and smooth the bust area.  I have the worst habit of being a side-sleeper, which is giving me wrinkles in the decolletage area. This totally works, but it takes weeks to see results! I got this at Target on a whim and will definitely repurchase.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain--I already own several of these (see the lip balm stain review here) but wanted these autumnal/winter shades. I have romantic and crush. Crush looks great on everyone, since it can be intensified in color, so it's my fave.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects--I got these for my birthday! The nail strips have little skulls on them and I've been wearing them all week for Halloween. I've used different colors of these in the past and loved them.

Sonia Kashuk Concealer Palette--One of my fave concealer palettes that also features a translucent powder. This is the second time I've purchased this, and it worked perfectly for my Disney Birthday Trip Extravaganza!

The Balm Nude 'Tude--I love this palette! I got this a couple of months ago on Hautelook, but don't think I've blogged about it. I can never have enough neutral palettes, I've decided.

Physician's Formula Happy Booster Highlighter--I have plenty of liquid highlighters (see my post on how to highlight your face) but was out of powder ones and wanted to try something new. I've been pleased with this so far! I like that there are different shades and that I can easily blend with a blush if desired.

If you are interested in more details on a product or more pictures (minus the bust, haha), let me know, below. I'd be happy to be more thorough if needed!

What beauty products have you been loving lately?

  2. Let me know if you have any mascara recommendations?

    I can never get anything that stays on and isn't an issue to take off.

  31. That lip stain looks great! I've been wanting to try CoverGirl's new Flipstick, but I'm not much of a lipstick girl. It just makes my lips dry. I'd love to find one that actually moisturizes!
